The coconut husks are bought (or harvested at our coconut plantation) and immediately washed using fresh water sources in large walled tanks; this removes a portion of sodium chloride (to EC 1.0) and also loosens the husks for later processes to separate the raw materials coir fibres and coco peat (coir pith). The husks are collected and transported to our in-house coir mills to be decorticated to remove the coir fibres, which leaves the bi-product coco peat (coir pith). The coco peat is transported to our large storage bunkers immediately and stored for at least four months; where the ageing process occurs to stabilise the raw materials.
Once ageing is completed we sieve the coco peat to remove the last remaining fibres we also extract very fine dusts which offer no advantages to the growing medium using our patented extraction techniques (this allows us to remove more fine dusts than any other manufacturer or supplier). At this stage further washing takes place, as well as buffering to remove more of the unwanted chemical properties. The coco peat is then dried on walled concrete drying floors.
Before and after sieving , we subject the coco peat to further chemical treatment, washed using fresh water in our washing facilities. Elements which are freely soluble in water, such as potassium, sodium and chloride, are removed. The salt content is reduced to an EC < 0.5 mS/cm, where it is blended with other coir materials and bagged into the finished product.
In addition to washing, we also buffer the coco peat. During this process, calcium nitrate (YARA branded only) is introduced to remove monovalent positive ions such as potassium from the coconut complex. By buffering, we remove not only elements which are soluble in water (as in the washing processes), but also elements which are bound to the coconut complex through a cation exchange. All buffering is completed at one of our buffering sites in Sri Lanka and verified independently by leading laboratories.
